Mavrck Named a 2016 ‘MITX Awards’ Finalist in Technology and Marketing Categories

We’re excited to announce that Mavrck has been nominated to be one of six finalists for the “Most Innovative Ad Technology” and “Best Use of Data to Drive Marketing in an Innovative Way” (together, with Tom’s of Maine) categories of the 2016 MITX Awards. Finalists for the “Innovative Ad Technology” category are nominated based upon the following criteria, as stated on the awards page: “As advertisers must take advantage of the benefits digital can provide using the latest and greatest advertising technology…[these are the] innovative platforms that are revolutionizing how to get the right message at the right time to the right people.”  The other finalists to this category include clypd, Fiksu, Grapevine, Nanigans, and Pixability. 

The criteria for the “Best Use of Data” award is defined as “[a company that] uses data to inform and create a great marketing campaign.” Finalists for this award include C-4 Analytics LLC, Fiksu, Jack Morton Worldwide – Boston, MullenLowe/Mediahub, and Radius Bank.

We at Mavrck are especially proud to be recognized as a finalist in this category, as a reflection of our customers’ success and how marketers are able to harness the power of their existing influential customers at scale to drive conversions on social. We believe in a simple thesis: a brand’s most valuable asset is their customer base, but not all customers are created equal. By empowering a brand to understand the social capital of their existing customers across digital touch points, that brand will rise above the noise by creating marketing people actually trust.

About Mavrck

We all know word-of-mouth is the most effective form of marketing, but word-of-mouth automation at scale has always been a challenge. At Mavrck, we harness the power of human-to-human marketing at scale by tapping into your most valuable asset: existing customers with influence.

By focusing on influential customers who engage a high percentage of their friends around a brand's relevant topics or keywords, Mavrck's patented micro-influencer marketing platform powers consumer brands like Hershey's, Sears and Unilever to discover and activate millions of their micro-influencers to distribute content and drive conversions across social networks.

On average, our "always-on" activation engine will get 3 friends to convert for every 1 micro-influencer activated.
